Subject: Good show
This was a rockin' but spacey night at one of our regular stops, biker haunt Brendan's Pub (formerly the Trackside Tavern, so-called because it was located 20 feet or so from commercial railroad tracks. Every so often you could hear trains going by, band or no.) The stage there had probably once been an office adjacent the main room. But now it housed us. It felt a little like a fishtank and our gigs there tended to head out into deep space.

By set 2, this show fits that description. We explore a lot of interesting, continuous territory especially between Playin' and Black Peter which basically navigates a lot of outer space but also rocks hard (cue Viola Lee Blues and Other One). Set 1 is worthwhile too. The first track here, Cold Rain, rocks the way the Dead were doing it in 1967. Hurts Me Too is soulful and satisfying. Track after track reflects a night where everyone's clicking and the show is going smoothly. Vocals in general are pretty strong this evening. Mike's bass amp had a few problems as many tapes from this period attest, but it's not too easy to spot where.

4.5 stars. Missing first 3 tracks but otherwise a complete show in order, a rewarding listen. Recording has a little distortion in peaks (especially on Cold Rain), but generally sounds very good.
